This course is a 4 credit course (15 weeks, 40 module) for M. Sc. Chemistry Students. Here, Students will be trained to improve their factual, conceptual, procedural and metacognitive knowledge. The scientific explanation given in the video contents makes use of the following components: Presentations, chemical structures, figures, tables, images, 3D-animations, white board demonstration, use of molecular models, paper 3D-models, mirrors etc. We gave emphasis to instructional design by leveraging theories based on Malcom Knowels Andragogy, modified Bloom’s taxonomy, the Feynman Technique, ADDIE model, Dick and Carey model, neuro slide design principles etc.



Learner's Feedback:

"This course is very great and is helpful not only for students but also for all chemistry professors. This course is the best platform for all organic chemistry learners. The language is very easy. So that, each and every student can understand all the concepts easily. Discussion forum is also a best platform for us to ask any query about any concept.
Thank you very much sir for excellent teaching, clearing every concept in organic chemistry from basic and giving assignments to us. Keep it up sir.
Also,thanks to SWAYAM for conducting such type of course for all chemistry learners." ---- Ketaki, One of the topper from the course July-2019.
"The classes are very explanatory and very useful for the PG students and also for the faculty members. I really appreciate the efforts taken by Balaji sir. " ---Seethalakshmi S "The course content was so relevant and insightful that every individual would definitely benefit hugely from it for their career in chemistry. The classes are very vivid, crystal clear and knowledgeable. I am very fortunate to be part oc this course." ---- Ramakrishna S "Professor Balaji did spendid job and did lots of efforts. Its been 15 days to the course have started and I am taking it right now. This course is beneficial to all as the professor took the course from basics to advance, this make learning very easy & he is very responsive which makes it very convenient." ----- Simran K "very good nd well qualified professors.
for solving gate, net questions, dis course iz useful. thanku for efforts of all professors". ---- Anonymous Syllabus Week 1
